As a leader, Morris has collaborated with artists including Cat Toren, Anthony Taddeo, Jessica Pavone String Ensemble, Helado Negro, Myra Melford, Jason Ajemian, and many others. Since 2016, Morris has organized the monthly, multi-disciplinary, experimental concert series Brackish – music & art in Brooklyn. A 2019 Composer Fellow at Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music, Morris has also been artist-in-residence at Willapa Bay AiR, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and the Banff Centre.
